Blitz Chess #345: King’s Indian Defence, Sämisch

This is a blitz chess game I played as black with time control 5|2. The opening was theKing’s Indian Defence, Sämisch variation. First there’s some action on the queenside with black lining up a b5 pawn break, then the kingside to prevent a dark-squared bishop exhange, and finally the center, where play turns quite volatile. Accurate calculation is paramount in such environments.
